Next time around

I'm an intelligent girl

Why else would I be in Ravenclaw?

I don't break rules

I won't heed peer pressure

&& I won't let others walk o v e r me

So eventually I had to

Which was probably because of Percy

I suppose it was the

TEMPTATION

evident to all prefects and Heads

but

being the naughty girl was

& even Percy fell

into that trap of skulking about like the underclassmen we were meant to discipline

But here's the ironic thing:

even I couldn't stand Percy

for that long

He wasn't a complete stickinthemud

but my life needed some

excitement, e n j o y m e n t

& only those coal eyes

h o l l o w

of my chest

&& I wanted his light to shine on

But I made the wrong choice

& I couldn't stand to stay

with Percy

(lucky Audrey's so tolerant)

If I could have a do-over,

I know I would choose

more W I S E L Y

Those lyrics are from the anime Martian Successor Nadesico, btw. :)
